Ingraham Mocks Parkland Student For College Rejection

ThinkProgress reports:

On Wednesday, Laura Ingraham, host of the primetime Fox News show Ingraham Angle, mocked 17-year-old Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg for getting rejected by four colleges. Ingraham’s tweet links to a Daily Wire aggregation of an interview Hogg did with TMZ in which he discussed getting rejected from four University of California schools.

In the six weeks since the shooting, Hogg has emerged as a leading student voice for gun control. As ThinkProgress has detailed, his efforts have sparked a smear campaign against him that started on the fringes of the internet but has become more mainstream, with right-wing voices going as far as to portray him as an aspiring fascist who sends secret messages to followers.
